Last Thursday, our twitter party on summer reading with Latino Literature was a huge success. The party was very exciting and everyone shared their insightful views on education and encouraging parents and families to explore Latino Literature. Latino children are in dire need of reading books by U.S. Latino authors & illustrators. Parents and educators are all aware that if children are not exposed to Latino literature early on they will not benefit from Latino books. It is time for students to see characters that resemble some of their cultures and values , this can be very inspiring to them. This chat was a huge step in the right direction and here are some of the top tweets.
We hope that everyone supports Latino literature and encourages students to reading more promoting this in their communities!
